I wrote last week that the Olympus SHG 35-100 F2 was going up for sale. Out it goes and in comes this. Bought used. WAY smaller and lighter. My travel kit just got nicer; 12-40 pro, this lens and the 25 f1.4.
Yeah I know it can't come close to matching the Oly SHG quality & image IQ but its pretty darn slick and I like what I am seeing so far. I will use it more often and that for me trumps everything else. Here is my first shot at 200mm and f2.8. Pretty sweet.
OK, spent the evening toying around so I have a late night addition to this post. It's pretty good. I am thinking the focus is a bit slower than my Oly 12-40 pro. My first impression is that it isn't spectacular but it is pretty darn good. Here are a few more shots.
And one last shot, a product shot. Its sharp and sweet for this kind of stuff. I shot this at f2.8.
Off the the track meet today for more testing.....
